Now I have edited my song with Wavosaur, but when I save it, it is saved as a .wav file, which is 21MG large.
How can I get Wavosaur to save it as an MP3? I need to be a smaller file, and able to put it on a CD with other music and play it in a regular CD boom box player. I don't think the .wav format will do that (?)

I tried to use the online converter to convert it to an MP3, but the converter took too long to upload the .wav file and stopped working each time I tried to do it, so I couldn't use that.
THANKS for any help!!

you have to go to menu -> Files -> Export -> Export as mp3
be sure to have the mp3 codec before

here's the instructions for Wavosaur 32 bit : http://www.wavosaur.com/forum/export-as-mp3-with-wavosaur-lame-encoder-setup-t335.html

and if you use Wavosaur 64 bit, these are ther same instructions but with the lame_enc.dll present in this package : http://www.rarewares.org/files/mp3/lame3.99.5-64.zip

Thank you! What do you mean when you say "be sure to have the MP3 codec before"?
I do not know what that means.
thanks!

i gave you the link right after : http://www.wavosaur.com/forum/export-as-mp3-with-wavosaur-lame-encoder-setup-t335.html

basically, you have to download lame_enc.dll, it's free and easy.
you have to do that because we do not have the right to propose direct mp3 encodingwithout paying a fee

Thank you VERY much for your timely replies and your help.
